The Antinori family has been committed to the art of winemaking for over six centuries since 1385 when Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member, of the “Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri”, the Florentine Winemakers’ Guild. All throughout its history, twenty-six generations long, the Antinori family has managed the business directly making innovative and sometimes bold decisions while upholding the utmost respect for traditions and the environment.
The grapes for this wine coming from the Pian delle Vigne estate located outside of the town of Montalcino come from wines of about 20 years of age. After a careful selection both in the vineyard and in the cellar, the grapes were destemmed and delicately pressed; the must then went into temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks where it fermented and remained on its skins at a controlled temperature for a period of three weeks. The wine was put through a complete malolactic fermentation and then began its ageing period in oak casks. After more than two years of ageing, the wine was bottled.
Longevity: 10-20 years
